Of course I’d contact them! They might have gotten unexpectedly busy and haven’t been able to cash the check or send out a bill yet. Definitely check in, I’m sure they still want to get paid.

I second contacting  them, I’m sure they’ll follow it up sooner or later so it’s better to get it out of the way sooner!

mrsfox :  meh….I’d probably leave it and wait for them to contact me. It’s not your fault if they can’t seem to get their shit together in terms of running their business…but I also wouldn’t mentally write it off either. I’d probably siphon the funds Into a separate account for a while to wait it out and see.

Annoying, but I’d probably contact them just because I wouldn’t like to have it sitting there in the back of my mind. Ask for the second bill and for them to cash the cheque. Then if they still don’t respond and something happens later on you can show that you were ready and willing to pay.

Just pretend the money is not in your bank account. They aren’t required to cash the check right away.

That check is still good for six months if you are in the US. If you don’t have the money in the account when they go to cash it then you not only have to pay an overdraft fee, but the caterer can charge you a fee as well.

mrsfox :  Give them a call, state the date and time when you leave a message and record it for your own information.  That way if they try to claim you didn’t pay later, you’ve got evidence that you did -just to reduce possible hassle.  They might just be too busy, they might like collecting checks from 30 couples before cashing them all.  Who knows?

they may have lost the check. My school district took 2 months to cash a health insurance check. The gal was new and just didn’t get the checks to the bank.

I would definitely call them. It’s better that you encourage them to deposit than be surprised later on down the line when they finally cash your check!

mrsfox :  We had this issue too – I had to bug them to charge my card, they were doing it in installments for me so I wouldn’t have to pay the admin fee. I think I still owe them $700 but I gave up bugging them.
